25 Possible Causes for Unilateral Foot Swelling

  • Lymphedema Praecox

    In the leg, the swelling usually starts in the foot and gradually moves up the limb.[] Primary lymphoedema mostly affects the lower limb (unilateral or bilateral), but can affect the arms and other areas.[]

  • Hemophilia A

    Treatment Individuals with hemophilia A will benefit from referral to federally-funded hemophilia treatment centers. These specialized centers can provide comprehensive care for individuals with hemophilia including the development of specific treatment plans, monitoring and follow up of affected individuals, and[…][]

  • Ruptured Baker's Cyst

    We report a case of Epstein-Barr (EB) infection that presented as an acute monoarthritis of the knee. This formed a Baker's cyst which ruptured into the gastrocnemius. The peripheral and synovial white blood counts were dominated by neutrophils. After repeated aspirations, spontaneous resolution occurred.[]

  • Bacterial Infections

    In patients with cirrhosis, infections represent a frequent trigger for complications, increasing frequency of hospitalizations and mortality rate. This study aimed to identify predictors of early readmission (30 days) and of mid-term mortality (6 months) in patients with liver cirrhosis discharged after a[…][]

  • May-Thurner Syndrome

    May-Thurner syndrome (MTS), the clinical sequelae of left iliac vein compression between the right iliac artery and the spine, is an accepted cause of lower extremity edema and venous thromboembolism. It is more prevalent in younger women and typically presents with left lower extremity symptoms. Atypical[…][]

  • Congenital Venous Malformation

    Tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy have become frequently performed outpatient procedures and are generally considered to have a low morbidity profile. Postoperative haemorrhage remains a rare but important complication, while intraoperative uncontrollable bleeding is extremely uncommon. A child with congenital vascular[…][]

  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

    Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is a form of a complex regional pain syndrome that affects the extremities. It is characterized primarily by pain, swelling and vasomotor changes.

  • Venous Insufficiency of Leg

    Certain nocturnal symptoms such as leg cramping (LC) and restless leg symptoms (RLS) are found in patients with venous disease. This study investigates the relationship between nocturnal symptoms and anatomic locations of superficial venous insufficiency. A retrospective review of 371 consecutive patients[…][]

  • Hereditary Lymphedema

    Primary lymphedema covers around 10% of all lymphedema cases. Most cases segregate as an autosomal dominant trait and rarely manifest autosomal recessive inheritance. Our research aimed to map and ultimately to hunt the mutation that causes hereditary lymphedema in an extended consanguineous Muslim family[…][]
